TV to movies and back
3 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From what I've read over the years, Parenthood was conceived as a series in the late 1980s but never got picked up by the networks. It was then turned into a movie and, after the movie was a hit, relaunched as a series...??!! The series came and went despite a great cast of TV actors (any couple can relate to Ed Begley Jr. and Jayne Atkinson as parents and/or William Windom and Sheila McRae as grandparents, not to mention Leonardo DiCaprio and Thora Birch among the children). Add into this Ron Howard and his partner Brian Grazer and at least five other people credited as executive producers. This show should've clicked as a series but it didn't...??!! 20 years later, it's back...different cast and the same producers...let's see what happens this time around!! This was a great series that should've worked. My wife and I saw the movie and every episode of the series and, as previously stated, we related to the Begley-Atkinson couple. Let's see if 20 years have changed things.
